I found the following story while trolling through CNN. Apparently, $250 million dollars is being used to fund abstinence programs in school… that are not evidence based. A resounding WTF comes to mind. We are funding programs in school that are not based on any factual or even circumstancial evidence? $250 million to tell hormone driven teens NOT to have sex? Ridiculous. That’s like telling a hungry person not to eat. I can’t believe my taxes are paying for this hogwash. No sex before marriage?!!! How about no marriage before sex? The result would be a much happier life and if the person chooses to get married a much happier marriage.
Here’s an idea, how about we teach kids how human biology works and the risks that come with having sex, as well as, how to protect themselves and their partners from them while using the appropriate measures. Then again, this would require evidence, facts and common sense and that would probably confuse kids. Lets not fight ignorance with knowledge and education, we may actually teach our youth something. I shouldn’t be suprised though, since some states already teach another evidence lacking program called Intelligent Design.
